The big problem with many slips, trips and falls in Suffolk is that there was no reason for them to happen in the first place. They could have been avoided and this is an issue that needs to be highlighted.
Of course accidents will always happen, this is just a reality of the world. However, when companies have a responsibility to ensure that members of the public are safe when they enter their premises, and they do not meet this standard, then it is clear that there is something wrong.
In a perfect world we could simply trust everyone to do the right thing. This crazy notion could even extend to corporations (who do not have the best track record). But we do not live in this world – which is a shame – and it means that companies have to be held accountable by the people.
These slips, trips and falls in Suffolk could be avoided
The end goal should really be that all companies take responsibility for their own environment; a grand goal, but a worthy one. The only way that this can be achieved is through everyone making a stand. Everyone should not let companies get away with anything.
This especially involves accidents, as the first thing they should do properly is provide a safe environment for their customers and their employees – quality of goods and fair business practices come second to this basic standard.
It should not matter what the cost of this is to the company, as any company that cannot perform in the market in a responsible manner has no right to be trading in the first place. It is that simple.
